About Empathy

Well, my theory about the scalp pain may have been off…There was some throbbing on the left side of my scalp today and yesterday after not feeling anything there over the past month. Not sure what that means….it’s weird.

I read an article today about the differences between empathy, compassion and sympathy and how doctors need to learn more about using empathy with their patients. I mentioned in my film, Shunt Chronicles: My brain, art and school (2015)  how my previous neurosurgeon lacked empathy in regards to my situation.
